Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #59 ~ Scare Me

Good morning, we have a new challenge on the Paperbabe Stamps blog today, it's a fun scre theme.
I had lots of fun creating this mixed media witch,
Chatting with my daughter Maoleidigh we decided that a witch in a mirror would be much more fitting than in a coffin shape etc so I used an ornate frame and doodled along the edges to give a gold frame effect.
The background was created with neocolors, I didn't think the colours would be so vibrant.
I used the mini Head & torso with loose plait and female face to create my witch. The roses and spider web were from the standard and mini sugar skull sets combined, it was great to have two sizes.
For the witches hat I have created the brim to be dimensional,
I've finished off with a magic bottle, I've heat embossed the bottle and label onto vellum, the bottle itself was on some blue vellum I've had in my stash for many many years and the smoke flume I coloured the back of frosted vellum with distress oxide.

I've put together a slideshow of the steps, it's not easy to create videos at the moment as viewers coming to the house I feel I always have to put the equipment away... not fun, but a few pics should help.


Thanks for stopping by enjoy a wonderfully creative weekend

Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #58 ~ Sketch Challenge

Good morning, we have a new challenge on the Paperbabe Stamps blog today, it's a fun little sketch.

I was feeling the autumn colour pallette and enjoyed creating this card, I treated myself to some distress oxides(about time) and blended an autumnal background.
the crunchy leaves represent the circle... I stamped the leaf image in a few colours onto paper and scrunched the paper, then inked with a little distress ink before cutting the images out.
and the string of conkers, which represented the ribbon on the sketch, I stamped onto card, I added a little shadow with coloured pencil before cutting the whole thing out and raised it on dimensional adhesive foam.
All using the Completely Conkers Stamp set.

we also have
Autumn Sale
